2. Caramel Apple Pie – my mouth is watering just typing this!

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes

*Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Ingredients and directions for filling:

  •  1 unbaked pie crust (premade) or you can use your own pie crust recipe
  • 6 cups sliced apples (a reason to go apple picking)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Ingredients and directions for topping:

  • 3/4 cup flour 
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 6 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions for filling: Combine the apples, brown sugar,  cornstarch and cinnamon. Place in a crust.

Directions for topping: Combine all the topping ingredients with your fingers until crumbly. Sprinkle the crumbles on top of the apples. 

Bake for 45 minutes. Watch the top. Throw a piece of foil on top if it starts getting too brown.

To make the caramel, combine the sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan. Cook, stirring often, until you get a deep brown color. Remove from heat and add butter, cream, and vanilla one at a time.  If you have trouble getting it to dissolve, return it to the heat for a minute. When the pie and the caramel are cool, pour caramel your topping over the pie. (recipe from https://morningchores.com/fall-pie-recipes/)
